how to use excel and function

Quick Intro

By using AND Function you can check multiple conditions at a time.

If all those conditions are TRUE it will return TRUE and if any of those conditions is not TRUE then it will return a FALSE.

In simple words, it will only return TRUE when all conditions are TRUE else it will return FALSE.

Defination for Excel AND Function

In above example, I have used And Function to check 3 conditions in a single formula. Where all these 3 conditions are met, it has return TRUE and where all the conditions are not met, the result is FALSE.

Syntax

AND(logical1, [logical2], …)

  • logical1 Condition which you want to verify.
  • [logical2] Additional conditions you want to verify.

More Information On Excel AND Function

  • Values will be ignored if reference cell or array contained an empty cell or text.
  • The result of conditions should be in logical value (TRUE or FALSE).
  • It will return an error if there is no logical value is returned.
  • The maximum numbers of values you can test are 255.

Examples

The best use of AND is with IF Function. By combining these two functions you can increase the powers of IF Function.

    Exactly, you can use … =if(or(a=b;b=c;c=x);true;false) or =if(and(a=b;b=c;c=x);true;false)
